Intro to “AliWorld” (Part 4) – Plunging into Product Pages

Part 1 - Sourcing from Abroad and Selling Domestically

Part 3 - Filtering Results at a Glance

Product Page

Now that we've seen how to handle the search results page, let's take a quick turn to an Alibaba product page. We used "small battery-powered bluetooth speaker" as the example in Part 3 , so let's continue with that.

Just like the results page, we are given a lot of information. Taking a step back for a second allows us to notice that we've already seen a lot of this information. We've seen some of the product information (like price per piece) and supplier information (like the number of transactions in the last 6 months) in the search results. That's all repeated here.

We do, however, have some extra details. We now have access to more photos (below the main photo), a description of the product (below), and a clearer look at the manufacturer. 

"Response time"

Clicking here shows us more about what that means:

Stick around for part 5 if you want to see how I organize all this information into a useful Excel sheet!
